27-year-old “School of Rock” actor Joey Gaydos Jr, who played the role of lead guitarist Zack, has been arrested four times in the past five weeks for allegedly stealing guitars and an amp.
“According to cops, Joey is making a bad habit of walking into stores, asking to test guitars, walking out with the instrument without paying… and then unloading them at pawn shops.
“Police say Joey’s string of heists began early this year when he allegedly nabbed a blue Les Paul Epiphone Prophecy valued at $800, a black Fender Stratocaster worth $699, and a Gibson Les Paul gold top with a $1,900 price tag.”
The source adds:
“According to cops, Joey confessed and blamed a drug problem. However, in court, he entered not guilty pleas for the guitars. He’s yet to give a plea in the amp case.”
